Adventures of Sparky the Fire Dog:

 Sparky

 

 

 Haldimand County was involved in the program “Adventures of Sparky the Fire Dog”.  This program was present in nearly all Elementary schools and allowed grade one students time with Sparky the fire dog.  Each student had the opportunity to take Sparky home, complete the fire and home safety checklist with their family and record the experience through pictures, drawing and writing.  Our educators returned to the schools upon completion of the program to review the scrapbook with the students, talk about fire and home safety and show off their gear and trucks. 

For more information on this initiative please contact the office at 905 318 5932 Ext  6240 or by email at akrajcir@haldimandcounty.on.ca
